Plume moth - Stenoptilodes sp. ? - Emmelina monodactyla

Plume moth - Stenoptilodes sp. ? - Emmelina monodactyla
New Westminster, Vancouver area, British Columbia, Canada
August 23, 2007
Size: approx. 11mm
Found on a stucco wall near a pond. I've looked at the MPG plume moths, and from that and a similar photo here , I am moderately confident that I have a Stenoptilodes sp. but I don't know which. Deborah Matthews lists three Stenoptilodes in North America: S. antirrhina, S. brevipennis, and S. taprobanes. Unfortunately, MPG has photos only of S. taprobanes.

The page for Stenoptilodes (1) seems to indicate that by range this should be S. brevipennis. Is that a correct interpretation?
